We all need water. And while studies suggest that most of us don’t drink as much water as our bodies actually need each day, it’s really not that complicated to make sure we’re staying healthy and hydrated. Let me explain.
Recently my family and I had an opportunity to check out the Primo® in-home water dispenser, and I have to be honest: we are blown away and I have no doubt that you will be, too. We chose the Deluxe Bottom Loading Water Dispenser with Self-Sanitization. I love the sleek design, and the push-button controls give you access to cool, ice cold, or piping hot water in an instant!
Suddenly, providing my family with delicious water is simple. Making my morning K-cup is a no brainer, and repeatedly filling my dogs’ water bowl throughout the day is as easy as pressing a button.
These are just a few of the reasons that I think you should add a Primo water dispenser to your home, and if you keep reading, I’ll give you 5 more.
5 Reasons to Use a Primo Water Dispenser in Your Dog-Friendly Home
1. You’ll Drink More Water
Most experts agree that humans need a minimum of eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day, and your dog needs one ounce of water for every pound of body weight.
Most of us are not getting the water we need to stay healthy and keep our bodies functioning at an optimum level.
Staying hydrated is so important for our brain health, and having delicious, purified water at the touch of a button makes it so easy to get the water our bodies need each and every day.
Did you know that adding a water dispenser to your home results in families drinking 25 percent more water? I think that’s pretty amazing.
2. You’ll Reduce Plastic Waste
You’ll be shocked to learn that more than 480 billion plastic bottles were purchased worldwide in 2016, but less than half of those bottles got recycled. That means most of them ended up in oceans and landfills. Yikes!
By using a Primo in-home water dispenser, you’ll prevent 1,100 single-use water bottles from ending up in landfills when you refill your own 5-gallon water bottle. Let me explain how simple this is for you.
Have you ever noticed those 5-gallon water bottles when you walk into your favorite Walmart store? That’s Primo (or it might say “Glacier”, but it’s the same great company).
You simply take your own Primo water bottles to Walmart, fill them with delicious purified water that the entire family will love, and then you sit back and feel good about the fact that you’re making the world a better place by not contributing to the growing plastic problem.
See what I mean? Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
You’ll also find Primo at your other favorite stores like Home Depot, Lowes, Kroger, and Albertsons. Find stores near you here.
3. You’ll Save Money
Even if you purchase store brand bottled water (as opposed to name brand), you’re probably spending at least $3-4 per case. When I refill my Primo 5-gallon water bottles, I spend less than $2 per bottle! I’m seriously floored by how inexpensive it is to provide great water for my family, dogs included.
You can purchase a non-spill cap, which makes it easier to refill at the refill station!
4. You’ll Know What’s in Your Water – And What’s Not
Primo’s multi-step purification process includes reverse osmosis that filters out many of the microscopic organisms and heavy metals that are found in normal drinking water.
The process also significantly reduces chlorine and chlorine by-products, bacteria and parasites, heavy metals (including lead and mercury), trace levels of pharmaceuticals, and many more contaminants.
Think about that the next time you go to the sink for a drink of tap water!
5. You’ll Be Happier
Your loved ones are drinking more water. You’re decreasing your family’s carbon “paw print” by refilling water bottles instead of throwing them in the trash. You’re saving money. What’s not love?
But in all seriousness, using a Primo water dispenser in your home has so many positive benefits for you, your family, and the environment. Don’t you think you should get started right now?
